Encyclopedia > 50 Pence

50 Pence, the pseudonym of UK hip hop producer Liam Don (born January 14, 1986 in Germany), is an artist spoofing Queens New York's hip hop star 50 Cent, based in Watford, England. He is known for parodying 50 Cent's singles by replacing the songs' various subjects with his rhymes about British pub culture, such as "P.I.N.T." (off 50 Cent's P.I.M.P.), and "In Da Pub" (a riff on "In Da Club"). His album title also spoofs 50's, with Get Rich or Claim Benefit as his categorization of English "ghetto" life. Mimicking 50 Cent's claim of being shot nine times, 50 Pence claims to limp from an accident on the stairs. He drives a Vauxhall Nova rather than a Mercedes-Benz, and his "girlfriend's mum" gave him the cash to buy all his "fancy stuff". ...

Article about "British coin Fifty Pence" in the English Wikipedia on 24-Apr-2004 (724 words)
The British decimal fifty pence (50p) coin was issued in October 1969 in the run-up to decimalisation to replace the ten shilling note.
Note that the coin is not circular but an equilaterally curved heptagon (seven-sided) to aid identification -- the sides are not straight but are curved so that the centre of curvature is the opposite apex of the coin, allowing the coin to roll freely in slot machines.
During the history of the coin, three different obverses have been used so far - between 1969 and 1984 the head of Queen Elizabeth II by Arnold Machin was used, between 1985 and 1997 the head by Raphael Maklouf was used, and since 1998 one by Ian Rank-Broadley has been used.
